Ooh – I really want to weigh in on this one, but don’t have time to read all the comments right now. So – my take on PVP:Basically, I like PVP a lot. It’s never the same thing twice, so at the end of an expansion’s life span, it’s easier to stay entertained. That said, I have some serious issues with PVP as well. I think that interrupts and CC are just ridiculous right now. Some classes in particular (*cough* FROST MAGES *cough*) are really just one great big Negative Play Experience (NPE) to fight. I know everything has its counter, but honestly, as someone that likes melee DPS I’ve never been effective against any but the worst geared or most incompetent of frost mages. Also, getting stun locked and burnt down when there’s literally nothing you can do is No Fun ™. I realize that there’s different strategies, different ways to skin the proverbial cat. To that extent, maybe all of that (^up there^) is just QQ. Or maybe if I can’t beat ‘em, I should join ‘em. But, that’s my experience. When I’m getting to play my character and use abilities to get into (and out of!) situations, I enjoy PVP a great deal. One last thing – I’d really like to see Blizz incorporate some match-making intelligence into the RBG queueing system, though I fully acknowledge I have NO idea how they’d do that and force players to stick to it. But – getting in, for example, a CTF map with NO healers when the other team is 1/3 to ½ healers is AWFUL. Happened to me the other day. We literally could NOT take out the enemy FC, because he had a full complement of healers around him, and from what I’ve seen in PVP, a good healer will beat a good DPS one to one (and then some) any day.
